Birthdays during a pandemic!!!


Birthdays During a Pandemic


CakeSome of you may have wondered, has AIFD forgotten my birthday? You are correct, some of us have forgotten your birthday. But we still want to celebrate it. So Friday, October 16th, we’ll celebrate! Sorry, you’ll have to provide your own cake, ice cream, chocolate bar, pie, etc.

We promise, when all this is over, we’ll celebrate the right way with cake, ice cream and hugs, your choice!

Take care, we miss you!
(signed, all of us)

Oh how to survive a pandemic!!!


Oh, how to survive this pandemic?
If only we could have some music
And our good friend dance leaders!

So from their homes appear,
Kathleen, Franklin, Holly and Don,
And Misi, Lisa and Madelon!
Bob and Leslie Gompf, too-n.

(Sorry, Madeline. And spelling error!)

We thank our friends in Houston
For their every other week contribution
Donna, John, Joan, Sue and Michelle!

We cannot count Scott out!
His deft mouse clicks
and keystrokes help.

– Craig Roberts (AIFD president).

This list is maintained by Franklin Houston. If you run into any issues with the list, you can email Franklin at music_librarian@aifd.cc.

ZOOM TIPS

John Bloom of HIFD has posted some good information on how to help better your virtual dance experience.

Also, the dance leaders would like to provide you with some ideas on how to have an easier time following us during our virtual dance sessions. For dances that move around a lot, try taking smaller steps and doing quick little pivots in place to face your screen again. Also, putting up a mirror opposite your monitor screen can assist you in viewing the dance leader while your back is to the screen.
